This is an independent short dance film made by Ma. Alina Co and Maria Lyn Punay, which was submitted as their thesis for the completion of their course in the UP Film Institute, College of Mass Communication, University of the Philippines in 2004. They won the "Best Thesis" award for this film.
I was invited to be a part of this film (for experience ☺) by my younger teammate in the cheerleading squad, Maria Lyn Punay, to play the lead role/lead dancer as Yna. Yna was pursuing Theater Arts but got pregnant and was forced to quit school by her husband.
This was a very rewarding experience for me, not just because I also won the "Best Performance" award in the Inyorai Bidyo Festival 2006, when the filmmakers decided to submit their piece of art as one of the entries, but mainly because I was given the opportunity to experience dancing while acting at the same time. This film made me understand and appreciate better the art of film making, script writing, acting and dancing. Now I have something to share to my future children and show them what my passion was like when I was in college. With that, I am truly grateful. ♥
